Welcome to season 2, episode 50 of the Today is the Day Changemakers Podcast.
This week I welcome changemaker Gail Siggelakis: award-winning author, certified transformational life coach, and professional spreader of positive energy. After nearly 40 years spent as an educator, she has taken it upon herself to share her knowledge with a broader audience by writing an empowering, beautifully written book titled The Affirming Way of Life: See the Good, Speak the Good, Spread the Good.
In the 21st century, especially in recent times following a widespread spike in mental health awareness, nearly everyone has heard about positive affirmations. However, less have put the practice to use in a meaningful way. Upon hearing the term, most picture the concept as merely saying nice things to yourself in the mirror, but Gail elevates this idea to another level. She encourages us to be mindful in our expressions to others and to recognize the effect we have with the words we choose and the energy we exude through our thoughts and actions. Gail cites hesitancy to practice positive affirmations on the guarded nature of each of us in society. People are sometimes reluctant to openly express positivity, for fear of appearing weak or being taken advantage of. Ironically, this fear is itself a weakness, and Gail promotes pushing through such fears with a brave and open heart.
Inspired by a meaningful reoccurrence of the word “possibility” in her life, Gail has committed herself to embarking on the mission of helping others discover their talents and unleash all possibilities they may possess. She is also passionate about the importance of using words mindfully and explains the impact words can have on the world. Gail is a firm believer that positivity encourages use of talents and words of the positive nature will give you the power to create the life and relationships you want.
Her intuitive mind and sunny disposition motivates others to be cognizant of the energy they are putting out into the universe.
Gail also shares about why she decided to become a transformational life coach and what types of clients are drawn to working with her. To learn more about UPP Coach - Unleash Your Positive Possibilities - The UPP Coach | Gail Siggelakis.
